Bangs are a commitment. They always seem like a good idea at the time, but chances are you had just ended things with your ex and wanted a massive change. For the lucky ones, this works out. But for the rest of us, it means wanting to wear a hat until they grow out. If you’ve decided that bangs are what you need in life right now, there are two options on trend for 2023.
A little bit edgy, a little bit rock and roll, that’s how we’d describe the micro bang. As the name suggests, these bangs are shorter than the average, and typically stop around the middle of the forehead or just above the eyebrows. Zendaya, Emma Roberts, and Halle Berry have all rocked the look, with Florence Pugh most recently wearing them to the 2023 BAFTA Awards.
If you’re after a more low-maintenance look, peekaboo bangs may be the ones for you. Choppy and layered, these bangs allow some of your forehead to show through. And best of all, if you decide you’re over them, you can just sweep them out of the way. Ask your stylist for them to be textured and light enough to easily push away.
